Note: The sitter was from the provincial French region of Orléans, but the artist imbued her with Parisian sophistication. The cat she holds is known as a "Chartreux cat," descriptions of which first appeared in 18th-century France. While some at this time valued this breed as a companion animal, it was primarily bred for its fur. The bells on the chartreux's collar echo the pearls around Magdaleine's neck, suggesting that cat and sitter alike are refined objects for visual delectation. Her husband was a member of the Orléans nobility who had recently received several prestigious government appointments. This painting and a pendant portrait of him may have been intended to celebrate his achievements.
